"Students might check on that e-mail communication from the university once or twice a week, and by that time there might be 200 messages." 
 
-The Chronicle of Higher Education, Sept. 2012 
 
It's become clear that email alone is no longer an effective tool for reaching and engaging today’s student body as it's one of the last places students check for something new or interesting. Yet, many student service organizations still rely heavily on email to promote campus events and other activities that are key to overall student success. ConnectYard allows you to easily deliver important and timely notifications to students via SMS (text, picture and video messaging), Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other places they are more likely to check and interact with than email.

The proliferation of social media and mobile devices has fundamentally changed the way people find information and communicate. The result is a new generation of workers that are increasingly motivated to collaborate in more social and mobile ways. Yet communication within many of today’s enterprises remains largely siloed and fragmented, and as a result both time and money are lost waiting on information.

Learn how our platform can help you leverage the true power of today's most popular social and mobile technologies to get your colleagues and clients responding to your messages faster than ever before!
